Literature Review: Developing a Conceptual Framework to Assess the Sustainability of Community Coalitions Post-Federal Funding. D. Methodology


An extensive review of the literature in the fields of public health and social sciences (particularly sociology, community psychology, and political science) was conducted in order to identify peer-reviewed articles, reports, and white papers. Boolean search techniques were utilized to conduct these searches—maximizing the number of pertinent articles and minimizing extraneous material. References from relevant papers were used to identify additional sources. Exhibit 1.1 briefly summarizes the literature search strategy.
